Opinions on pre-hire assignments? I’m in the final stages of interviewing for a senior strategist job and they’re asking that I put together a robust presentation to refresh a program. They want me to think through messaging, channels, competitive, measurement, etc. I then have to present my strategy in an hour long meeting with the hiring manager and higher ups. Is this normal? I’ve never been asked to complete something so comprehensive for an interview process.

I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.

I am applying for some in-house roles and wanted to hear from other brand strategists who have made the transition. Thinking about job requirements like “experience developing a marketing plan” which a strategist would understand but not have experience developing...I’m wondering how you spoke about your background and skill set in an interview process to overcome a lack of in-house experience? Thanks for any thoughts
